With schools looking so different this fall, have you thought about your child learning at home? Learning from home this year gives you the option to have more stability as many schools continue to have a flexible schedule from virtual, hybrid, and in-person classes. It looks like we should expect to continue to see schools responding to the health concerns for students, staff, and the community. What does that mean for your child? No one really knows yet. With so many uncertainties this school year, homeschooling may be the only option to have stability for your child.
When considering homeschool for a child with dyslexia, you may want to think about hiring a private teacher to handle the instruction at home or a reading tutor. Our guest on the podcast today, Erin Paske, is sharing her experience as a private home teacher for students, who enjoyed the benefits of learning from home.
Erin Paske, who is no stranger to education and tutoring, is a special guest for the Back to School Miniseries. Erin earned her bachelor’s degree in elementary education with honors from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. In addition to teaching in Wisconsin public schools, she taught several years in private schools in St. Louis, Missouri, and Franklin, Tennessee.
Erin’s professional experience also includes homeschooling. For six years, she worked as a private teacher for families of high net worth, including a retired NFL player, entrepreneurs, and a professional musician. Erin saw the benefits of private, individualized instruction that could be tailored to the student’s way of learning and how quickly her students progressed.
In addition to teaching in public, private, and homeschool settings, Erin has a decade of experience tutoring students with reading challenges. Erin started the Nashville Dyslexia Center after seeing the struggles children experienced in the classroom year after year. Her personal mission is the mission of Nashville Dyslexia Center: to provide hope and help for struggling readers by providing the very best individualized instruction by professional teachers.
